Hello,
I have not worked on a laptop in a while, so i am needing a little bit of advice here.

What i am doing is a clean install on a ibm thinkpad 760el, and i am having a problem with the cd drivers.

I had this problem once before, but i am not sure what i did to get out of it. ok, here goes,

How do i get the cd drivers, when i have to use the floppy drive, and of course, it doesn't locate a rom drive, because there is not one there.

I am installing 98se, and it will not boot off the cd alone. So, do i need to copy the drivers from the floppy to the hard drive?

But how would i do that, when there is not a root directory or anything there. Just a newly formatted drive. all responses would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for the help. have a good night.

make a bootable cd instead of a bootdisk...then just boot to the cd, and swap it as needed :)
